The provider of solutions in the fields of polyolefins, base chemicals and fertilizers Borealis has taken the final investment decision for a new, world-scale propane dehydrogenation (PDH) plant. The facility will be located at the existing Borealis production site in Kallo (Antwerp), Belgium. The plant is scheduled to start up in the first half of 2022.

The PDH plant will have a targeted production capacity of 750,000 tonne per year. ,The Borealis Kallo location was selected due to its logistical position, its experience in propylene production and handling and the synergies with the existing PDH unit. Borealis will use Honeywell UOP’s Oleflex technology for the new plant, which is a widely used choice for on-purpose propylene production.

Oiltanking Antwerp Gas Terminal will be the logistics partner for the handling of propylene and the raw material propane and will construct a new 135,000 m³ propane storage tank. The hydrogen that is a by-product of the dehydrogenation process will be sold to Air Liquide under a long-term agreement. The approved investment also provides for the possibility to include cogeneration as part of the project.
